and mitt romney has a land that is pro growth and pro jobs and president obama doesn't. when you look at the last four years they are disappointed. we are living through the weakest economic recovery since the great depression, there are 22 million americans struggling to find works and 3.5 million more women in poverty. take home pay has gone down $4,300 per family. president obama has the glossy brochure and i have looked at that brochure and i layed this role of obama during the debate preparation and it is more of the same. you can argue we need to do more of the same but it hasn't worked and it hasn't worked by president obama's own measurement, saying unemployment would be 15 percent lower if we passed the stimulus package. he said economic growth today would be two-thirds higher than it is. so, it hasn't worked. the one thing he does have in his new proposal is to raise taxes. yes, he wants to raise taxes on a million small businesses including a lot in ohio, and that will result, according to a study by the national medicination of independent businesses, with a 700,000 job lo
cracking, ohio, boem could -- obama could win because of fracking and all the jobs that's creating. second thing, the core issue of this campaign, we've got a need for tremendous government reform. we've got governments that are helping create a sclerotic economy, and what kasich has done, what mitch daniels has done, indiana, some of those reform governors have done the sort of reforms that strip away the sclerosis. they're seeing some growth. and i'm surprised that mitt romney isn't running on that sort of broad -- i'm not radical. look at what mitch daniels has done, i want to do it for the federal government. >> from a state like ohio. >> it's amazing he's not running on a change washington. he's winning the question, but not by a lot and it's always amazed me. the country is not happy with washington. i want to go back to the demographic question. what makes ohio different from all the other battleground states and all of the other mathematics from obama campaign. it's the state that demographically doesn't fit what they're trying to do everything that they're trying to do in every ot
-growth and pro jobs to turn this thing around and, obama doesn't and when people look at the last four years they are disappointed, they must be. look, we are living through the weakest economic recovery since the great depression. and, there are 22 million americans struggling to find work and 3.5 million more women in poverty and take home pay has gone down $4300 per family on average and it is not the right direction, we are headed in the wrong direction and you have president obama, you are right. he has a glossy brochure and i've looked at that brochure and as you know i played the role of obama during the debate preps and it is more of the same and you can argue we need to do more of the same but it hasn't worked and hasn't worked by president obama's own measurements, he said unemployment would be 50% lower, than it is, if we passed the stimulus package and, economic growth would be 2/3 higher than it is. and the one thing that is in his now parole is to raise taxes and he wants to raise taxes on a million small businesses including a lot here in ohio and that will result according to
obama wants to suggest thathere have been more jobs created in net than ha there have actually been created because he wants us to feel better about the economy than the data would actually warrant. governor romney wants to feature everything that's negative, without acknowledging anything that's positive about the economy. and if people feature one of those indictments without picking up t other compensatory body of r information, they don have the whole picture. the reality is the economic th indicators right now are mixed. and you have a new obama ad on the air that's trying to feature the ones that are positive in order to increase the likelihood that you think about those as you ask whether or not the country is better off now than it would've been, had obama not been president. we were in a deep recession. and president obama's having the difficulty of having to make the argument that, "things are better than they would have been, had i not done what i have done." but they're still not what they ought to be. and that's a tough case for the incumbent. and governor romney's expl
the 12 million jobs he's promised? or what barack obama's going to do in his second term? do you have any sense of that? >> well, in the case of the 12 million jobs, as we know, you don't have to do anything and you'll get 12 million jobs. any number of economists and moody's analytics have predicted that simply by keeping present policies in place, 12 million jobs will be created over that period. so it's not much of a boast. as for the tax policy, my guess is that he doesn't know and he is just saying things. he has said he wants to cut taxes -- rates by 20%. and i believe he does and would. but when you ask him why that won't be a $5 trillion increase in the deficit, he says -- and i love the third person, "if mitt romney says there won't be an increase in the deficit, there won't be. that's why and how." >> i know how he could, because some of the studies he cites make assumptions that would let him become revenue neutral. he could take the major deductions away from everyone making more than $100,000. that would effectively do it according to one of the studies. he could also elimina
president of the law review. in his second year, obama won the job. >> although i'm nored and i think people can say that myan election symbolizes some progress, at least within the small confines othe legal community, i think it's real important to keep the focus on the broader world out there and see that for a lot of kids,h the doors that have been opened to me aren't open to them. >> narrator: the african-american editors were ecstatic. >> i think a lot of the minority editors on the review expected him to use his discretion to the maximum extent possible to empower them. >> there was an expectation on the part of his more progressive colleagues at the law review that he would side with them on issues. >> barack was reluctant to do that. it's not that he was oute f sympathy with their views, but his first and foremost goal, it always seemed to me, was to put out a first-rate publication. and he was not going to let politics or ideology get in the way of doing that. >> narrator: only one african-american student received a top editos job. conservative members were given three. >> the whol

if you look at the mess that president obama inherited and i mean losing 800,000 jobs a month, month after month, the first few months of his presidency. he's turned it around, got 32 months of job creation, 5.2 million jobs. the national export initiative, exports were up 38%. i think people are going to hear that and i think they're going to recognize that governor romney's plan of adding $2 trillion to military spending and at the same time promising $5 trillion of tax cuts to largely skewed to the wealthier parts of the population, without any specifics, right? i mean it's like trying to sell a pig in a poke. what are those deductions and tax credits he's going to get rid of? are we going to lose the home mortgage deduction? the deduction for giving for philanthropic organizations? like churches that are in many cases for local government are best partners at fighting important poverty, that kind of stuff. >> governor walker, for you as well, the defining issue that determines the outcome in your state? >> well it's certainly about jobs. in our case it's elections are fundamental
't think obama's done a particularly good job, but they're very skeptical of romney. so i think it's going to come down to party politics. democrats voting for democrats and republicans voting for republicans. in that case ground game is crucial. i think you're right in ohio ground game is going to favor obama. i think the only silver lining is that in 2008 obama won 22 of ohio's 88 counties making it clear that the population battle over the cities is really what's important. so having the political offices all over the state might not actually be the determining factor, but i think -- look, i'll be honest. i have ohio going blue in my electoral map. >> look, it's creditical to oba and the campaign they win this ground game. you see evidence in the polls of republicans on the whole are more motivated to throw out barack obama than democrats on the whole are to re-elect him. that doesn't mean there aren't lots of motivated democrats out there. they yell at me on twitter. you get over 90% from republicans a lot. it's not that high from democrats. you know what makes me think of micha michae

that barack obama's plan to help the auto industry has paid off in jobs in ohio. believe me, i come from the industrial midwest. people remember who helped them save their jobs. now, look, there's something else we're not mentioning here that plays directly into the ohio race, and that's the senate race going on there. brown who is a wonderful senator and fantastic candidate who took votes all along the eastern border of ohio, well better than most democrats do, he's ahead. he's going to beat josh mendel in that senate race. i think you'll see reverse coattails and sherrod brown, who is a fantastic senate candidate, win. and that's going to help barack obama. people will see both names on the ballot rather, and they're going to strovote for both of t. it will help get president obama over the finish line in ohio. >> we'll be watching. thank you, gentlemen. >>> new details surrounding hurricane sandy. we heard that the holland tunnel and brooklyn battery tunnel will close in manhattan at 2:00 this afternoon. parts of lower manhattan are already taking on a little water. anne thompson is a
